WOW, what a top of the ridge view! Hemlock Point is an Appalachian Log Homes cabin built in the vernacular of the Appalachian style. Square logs reminiscent of the Scotch Irish settlers in the 1700's make you feel as if you have stepped back to an earlier time. Large hemlocks, abundant on this property give Hemlock Point cabin its name. Furnished with antiques, a claw foot bathtub, natural materials, comfy furniture, quilts, a soapstone fireplace (albeit gas logs), a gun over the mantle, a variety of varmints hung on the wall (bought at auction)... collections to create an atmosphere of make believe. You are a now in the role of mountain settler, cozy up to the fire and set a spell.
The mountain ridge views from this log home are phenomenal. The breezes of refreshing mountain air are exhilarating. Looking out over 7 to 9 ridges (depends on the day) you can imagine how it looked to 'first nations' peoples and early settlers seeing it for the first time. Daniel Boone traversed these mountain ranges, living just few miles away on the Yadkin River. You certainly will believe that God was at work in building all the mountain's glory. Most of our guests have commented on God's blessings for this space, this mountain, this respite in their lives. Leatherwood Mountains subdivision, a 5000 acre gated community in southwestern Wilkes County, NC, is well known in the horse world for its extensive horse trail system, some of the most rugged in the eastern United States. Hemlock Point cabin has two horse stalls and pasture available for our guests.
The 75 miles of trails within the subdivision are perfect for hikers as well as horsemen. The views, the trails, the nature, the glory will abide here for all time.
Sitting on the top of a ridge, Hemlock Point cabin's views toward the western mountain ranges encompass up to 7 distant ridges. Nearly every window in the cabin features a long range mountain vista. Hemlock Point cabin is located in private wilderness Leatherwood Mountains subdivision. But being in the wilderness does not mean that one should be without modern comforts. The cabin features Digital television with Chromecast, WiFi, a new hot tub, and a well stocked kitchen for your convenience. Leatherwood Mountain's swimming pool, tennis courts, hiking and riding trails, and mountain fishing streams are also available.

About Mary Helen Ellis
'The Human Spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man,' written by an unknown author. We love the rural life! Our passions are the Blue Ridge Mountains and Eastern North Carolina on the Pamlico River. We surround our lives with history and culture; finding joy in the lives of those that came before us. We relish all things of nature: woods, wildlife, Celtic Music, boating, hiking, horseback riding, crafting, gardening... we see God's hands at work in the land and the creative spirit.
Mary Helen Ellis purchased this Cabin in 1999
Why Mary Helen Ellis chose Ferguson
In 1997 we made a leap of faith and purchased our first property at Leatherwood Mountains Resort. We appreciated Leatherwood Mountain's concept of stewardship in creating a human presence but maintaining the wilderness for all generations. Our 16 acres at the center of 5000 protected acres will always be a home for God's creatures. Our views across the mountains will pretty much be the same for our lives and the lives of those that come after us. The North Carolina High Country in northeastern N C has a tremendous cultural history that speaks to our interests. The beauty and availability of wilderness areas soothes our souls. We feel very blessed to have found our spot that brings all of our loves together.
What makes this Cabin unique
Hemlock Point is designed to take you away from where ever you come from...away to an earlier time in our history, back to life of our forefathers. Mountain life was part and parcel to the environment...the home was made from trees, the scene taken in was of God's handiwork, everything was slower and more deliberate in nature; one heard the cicadas, saw the stars in the night sky, witnessed the morning sunrise. We want there to be a place left in this busy world to relish nature. Take a horse back ride through the mountains. But all that being said, Hemlock Point is situated close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and is close to many Blue Ridge Mountain activities and points of interest. Best of both worlds! Hemlock Point cabin is located in gated Leatherwood Mountains Resort. The square Hemlock logs, gas fireplace, rustic wood cabinets and antiques, including a claw foot tub, are all meant to give you the true North Carolina mountain settler cabin experience.

Sports & Adventure Activities
What a peaceful location with amazing views and trails! Well stocked cabin . Thank you!
Having access to endless hiking trails right from the property is wonderful. Enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and hot tub after long hikes.
Great mountain ambience
Better than expected. Thought it might be superficially cabin like. Nope. Square log and chinking construction with rustic floors and hand hewn beams. Perfect size for our family of four that includes two teenagers. 360 degree mountain views. Only thing missing for our Christmas was snow.
Absolutely Stunning Property with Exceptional Views
Let me start off with saying as you pull in to the area you go through a gorgeous setting with horses and beautiful landscape. As you enter the private gate, you ascend to the top of the mountain where this house sits. The views are breath taking from every location in and around this home. The interior is gorgeous and the pictures you can view prior to booking do this property no justice, everything is gorgeous.
There is a restaurant at the base of the small mountain which is a minute or two away. They also have a outdoor community pool if you stay in the warmer months. Everything about this stay will leave you having a "ah ha" moment as you take it all in and relax in this private setting.
We will definitely be saying here again in the future, don't hesitate to book this place!
Loved our time at this cute cabin in the woods
Perfect cabin in the woods, beautifully sited. Very comfortable for two couples and 2 pups. Front porch overlooking the mountains was great spot to enjoy our evening wine. Cabin was well equipped. would rent again!
Clean and cozy
My husband and I had a wonderful return visit to this cabin. We came for a quiet relaxing anniversary weekend and got exactly what we were looking for. Thankfully found a few things in the cabinets that I had forgotten, and had everything we needed to stay right here for the weekend. Looking forward to visiting again!
We enjoyed our long weekend at Hemlock Point. The view was amazing, the house cozy, and the hot tub an added treat. The house is warm, welcoming and well stocked. Thank you for sharing your home.
Guided horse back riding, hiking, mountain creek tubing. This cabin rents with Rollin N the Hay for a 10% discount on both.
